Customer Ratings & Reviews
The Magpul speed plate is a no brainer accessory
Installation is easy, it only takes a minute. I have these installed on all my Glock mags, other than the 1 I keep for concealed carry. They will add a little material to the mag's bottom, but in a rapid change situation, I love these.
magpul glock base plate
If you practice a lot (and you should!), then your magazines should be dropping to the floor a few hundred times a week. These rubber baseplates act as a cushion and keep your mags from taking the brunt of the impact. Additionally, the extra "feel" of the extension helps index the mag in your palm, making for very positive feeling reloads. I think Magpul did change the design a few years ago. There is no way you're going to pull the loop away from this baseplate without cutting it off. It's built just like the ranger plate for the Pmag.
Glock magazine speed plate
I have replaced the base pads on all my 9mm Glock magazines. It's one way I distinguish between my 9mm and my 40 S&W magazines. If these things were made in tan, I would put tan on my 40 S&W magazines also. The main reason I'm writing this review is to point out that these are replacement pads. The reviewers who talk about pulling them off are not using them correctly. If you were able to pull one off when correctly put on, you would have the spring, follower, and bullets everywhere. In fact, the problem with using these things is getting them on in the first place. The only way I found to get the original base pad off was to use a C-clamp to dis-engage the locking tabs. There is also a pin in the bottom you have to push in as you slide the pad off and try not to get hit in the head or worse with the spring. You basically need three hands plus the C-clamp, but it can be done with two hands. Good luck!!
This Magpul Glock speed plate works great
This Magpul Glock speed plate works great and has a tight fit. This fits my tactical leg pouch as well as my Colt sub-Gun mags. Speeds grip and reloads.
If you're looking for something simple, yet effective to help you get a better handle on your magazines during those dynamic situations where stress is pushing you to basic motor skills, these are it. Not only is the rubber molding very intuitive for your fingers right out of the package, but when you go to slam that magazine home, the material flexes just slightly to absorb the impact and save your hands from getting bitten. The magpul speedplate glock also help with giving you that little added advantage and easy feeling of knowing that even if you drop them, step on them, whatever, you won't have to replace the floorplate on your $30+ glock magazine. Simple to install, and very functional. Great product for the price.
I bought a set of these ...
I bought a set of these magpul speedplates for my Glock 23 mags for spare carry magazines. They were designed based on the idea that you could do a tactical reload without losing a quick shooting grip (youtube it to see videos). The problem is when you use them and "slam" your magazine into the gun, it puts a great deal of wear and tear on the rubber loop. This is fine so long as you practice with them and are ok with morphing your shooting habits to adapt to hitting the rubber the right way to avoid damage. I'd say buy a pack, see if YOU like them, and then buy some more. It's a personality thing.
